Funny to see this signage with its unusual closing time...and believe me, they follow it as I was driving by just about that time. I've been locked out of our building at work because someone followed precise closing times, as well. Precision certainly has its place in our world, as does a more balanced approach.

Worked with a student today who is so precise, focused, and driven to perfection on his math problem-solving that he cannot meet the time constraints of standardized testing. Ok, so perhaps the problem is with the test limits, but reality does rule sometimes. His skill could be well served in some occupations that require such precision, but will the time conflicts prevent him from finding his match? Where does the accommodation need to occur - the student or the test ... and how does that impact other similar conflicts? In the meantime, if you want your car washed at this business, you better be here before 4:55pm - you've been forewarned! 7th Ave N & US 41 E, Naples, FL
